It’s important to have at least one window in rooms you and your family use often. But it’s a bit different when it comes to the bathroom. Not only is it essential to have windows in this space–you also have to make sure you’ve chosen the right ones. The good news is that this is easier than you might expect, especially once you know the bases to cover. Renewal by Andersen® of Rapid City, the premier picture window installation company in the area, shares some tips.
Consider Greater Access to Ventilation
Like the laundry room and kitchen, the bathroom generates a considerable amount of moisture. And where there’s excess moisture, mold and mildew will soon follow. That’s why you should choose bathroom windows that can increase access to natural ventilation, because let’s admit it–that exhaust fan won’t be enough to get rid of the humidity.
Renewal by Andersen® of Rapid City is the go-to company for high-quality replacement window installation in Western South Dakota. Our exceptional casements and double hung windows are a champion at letting in cooler and fresher air. Our casement windows, for instance, can be opened wide–or their sashes angled–to direct cooling breezes into your bathroom. Meanwhile, the two operable sashes of our double hung units can be opened at the same time to expel warm, stale air out of the room, while ensuring smooth and continuous air circulation.
Comply with Local Building Requirements. Building codes and regulations generally dictate just how tall or big your bathroom windows should be. But since they exist to ensure your safety, it’s best to just adhere to them. If you have to choose a window style that can meet their guidelines effectively, you should consider casement and gliding windows. They are easy to operate, and can create a large enough opening to use in case of emergencies.
